Add cashews to a small pot and add just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes. Drain the water and add cashews to a blender.
Turn the heat off and remove your "cheese" and set aside.
Preheat oven to 425 F
Lightly brush the edges of the crust with olive oil. Spread sauce evenly over crust to within half an inch of the edges.
Taking a spoon, place small dollops of the cheese about 1-2 inches away from each other. Take a knife and cut into the casing of the vegan chorizo and crumble the chorizo (without the casing) on top of the pizza. Bake on a pizza stone, baking sheet or directly on the oven rack 5-8 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and crisp around the edges.
Top with freshly sliced basil, slice and enjoy!
